LOOKING for: storing sun dried tomatoes and dried mushrooms

Posted by LaurieF (My Page) on

Hello All,

Would someone please be so kind as to tell me the proper way to store both sun-dried tomatoes and dried mushrooms? Should they be placed in airtight containers in the fridge? On a pantry shelf? In a cool, dark, dry place? How long will they keep if properly stored?

I appreciate any help,

Laurie

I keep my sun-dried tomatoes in an air-tight container in my pantry,which is dark most of the time. They keep really well

Although it is an extra investment, I have found that storing my dried foods in vacuum food bags does seem to help their longevity. I also store them in a dark cool pantry.

I dried my own tomatoes until they're crisp. These last forever in jars. When I need them, I grind them up and use in sauces like paprika. Very rich flavor.
